Interpol, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and authorities in the Philippines joined a major criminal inquiry after a British teenager, who was blackmailed online, took his own life.
Police Scotland said Daniel Perry, 17, from Dunfermline in Fife lost his life due to cyber-crime linked to the Philippines. Assistant Chief Constable Malcolm Graham, of major crime and public protection, said:
Our message is clear: Our focus is on keeping people safe and there is no hiding place - anywhere in the world - if you are a criminal and you undertake this type of activity, which preys on those who might be the most vulnerable and susceptible to coercion and blackmail.
A young Scottish teenager lost his life as a result of this online activity. The impact on his family, friends and wider community cannot be imagined.
